DARKNOVAFORCE Reviews

RACIST EVIL 6(BIOHAZARD/RESIDENT EVIL)

Platforms: Xbox 360/PC/PS3

Game Supports Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, German, and English text.

Audio Support Italian, French, Spanish, German, and English.

Support 1-2 player coop offline and online. At times up to 4 online.

Played in 1st play through Leon-German, Chris-French, Eminem-Italian, and Ada-Spanish

in 2nd play through Leon-Spanish, Chris-German, Eminem-French, and Ada-Italian

Story:  1. Leon and Helena must find out who and what is causing the outbreak around the globe. 2. Piers must help Chris fight his inner demons if they want to succeed in their mission. 3. Sherry must make sure that Eminem lives in order to create a cure to the C-virus since his blood is the only thing that create such a thing. 4. Ada is on a secret mission to find out what Simmons is up to.

Good or Bad Story?: The story told through each campaign is really good. Leon’s story has a serious tone, Chris’ s story has a serious and emotional tone, Eminem’s has a not so serious tone, and Ada has that it’s a secret tone. GOOD!

Graphics: The graphics are really good. The character designs resemble the RE movies Degeneration and Damnation. However, there are a few textures that seem out of place. And RE6 is the best looking game running on MT Framework 2.

Audio: The voice acting in the languages I played the campaigns in are really good except for German Chris and Spanish Helena. The music is well done especially Eminem’s credit theme. Note when you update the game you will be able to select the voice options from in the game. Another note on 360 you must install the second disc if you want the ability to select other languages.

Game play:

Good: Biohazard 6 is a 3rd person action survival horror arcade shooter where you can shoot, punch/kick, dodge/t-bag, play with friends, give orders to ai partners, solve puzzles, slide, swim, counter, collect, and be stealthy. The controls in RE6 are a lot different than previous games as movement is now analog control instead of tank control and you can move and shoot. Also you now have 2 runs the default is moving the analog sticks all the way and the second you have to hold the A button which will make the character run faster. You now have 3 inventories one is for items(contains 9 slots), another is a shortcut for first aid and grenades, and the third is for your weapons(you will carry all of your weapons you collect now). All of your herbs are mapped to a button, also now when you aim your weapon you can now dodge attacks in any directions as well as t-bag your enemies, aiming also allows you to take cover on the walls with the help of the camera and when there is a hard surface in front of you by pressing the A button when aiming you’ll take cover, when running(2nd) if you press the aim button you will perform a slide. When you don’t aim you will be able to punch, kick, quick fire(causes stun), and do finishers like wrestling moves, but performing them requires stamina. The swimming controls are good and are similar to Revelations swim controls. The camera controls are also different as now you can rotate the camera to see the front of the character like other action games and when aiming you can switch the sides to see what’s to your left and right side of the screen, and with the update you can now adjust the camera to be closer or far from the character. Also at times the camera may lock on to certain parts of the levels when this happens it’s to give you a clue on where to go next. You also have the option to change the reticule and the color it is. There are some stealth parts with Eminem and Ada, but Ada has the ability to do a stealth takedown from cover. When playing you can either play by yourself or play with friends. If playing online players can drop in and out of a game at anytime, but if you play alone then the ai will control your partner and the ai does a good job of helping you and you can give them orders too. And now you have abilities that can be equipped to each character like better defense or infinite ammo for a weapon, these abilities can empower the player and give them the option to play the way they want giving the game a arcade rpg element and the best thing you can switch abilities at anytime. RE6 also has puzzles that are simple and tough(at first), boss fights, collectibles, comedy(Eminem story), different hubs for each character, horror(Leon, Chris, and Ada campaign), intense action, creepiness, survival elements, a guide arrow button in case you get lost, chases, unlockables, additional modes, and QTEs with one of them being the ability to counter enemy attacks.

Now here I will list what each campaign has:

Leon: Coop(play both Leon and Helena), action, horror, swimming, chases, zombies, boss fights, puzzles, creepiness, survival.

Chris: Coop(play both Chris and Piers), intense action, horror, chases, villagers(J’avo), boss fights, puzzles, creepiness, survival, exploration.

Eminem: Coop(play both Eminem and Sherry), intense action, chases, boss fights, puzzles, survival, exploration, hand to hand combat, stealth, villagers(J’avo).

Ada: Coop(play Ada and Agent when playing coop after updating, if you don’t play coop then you will play only Ada), intense action, chases, swimming, boss fights, puzzles, survival, exploration, take double damage, stealth, villagers(J’avo), zombies, creepiness.

There is 1 thing I will question: Why aren’t the chases done via QTEs? I don’t have a problem moving the character during this part, but it feels as it was meant to be done via QTEs.

Bad: ?

Overall: RE6 is a really good game. Its 1 of the best RE games I played and it’s my favorite RE game. The game gives you 4 campaigns that feel different from each other. To me I consider Chris and Eminem’s story tied in 1st place and Ada’s in 2nd place, with Leon being last due to it starts really slow, but Leon’s is not 1 of my faves even though its good. All 4 of them are good that each 1 should have been a XBLA game and then it should have come out as a GOTY edition. I’m liking where the series is going and would like to see more RE games like this. A must buy.

Likes: Graphics, voices, music, game play, coop, horror, action, unlocks, modes, stealth, QTEs, and puzzles.

Dislikes: German voice for Chris and Spanish voice for Helena.

Questionable: Chases.

Wish list: Sequel, dlc, more audio options.

Score: 5/5 AWESOME!

Recommended for fans of: RE, action, horror, stealth, survival, Capcom, arcade, shooters, QTEs, puzzles, comedy, WWE, coop, broops, and wrestling.
